I am a global citizen from Europe, speak several languages (German, English, Russian), but love Berkeley as a home base right now.
I am a single parent of a 14-year old daughter (part-time), love parenting, and am planning to have another child soon.
My deep friendships nourish me tremendously. What recharges me most is time in nature, as well as dancing with my creative movement community. I also love cooking, essential oils, high-quality dark chocolate, and watching foreign movies in the bathtub.
Currently I am juggling several jobs as I am trying to get myself established in academia. I hope that by Fall I will have eased into a more life-friendly rhythm. I would also love to establish more international connections and networks.
I am looking for someone who is: sweet and compassionate, dependable, emotionally mature, helpful, enjoys children,and open to global explorations. You are committed to open and honest communication, deep listening, and exploring and stating your needs. You are passionate about something in life and seeking to pursue that passion. You are independent and enjoy spending time pursuing your own interests.
